These tasty little jewels are a WONERFUL snack any time of the year, but I always seem to serve them for holiday snacks. You see, we don’t simply have a holiday meal…we have a brunchtime meal of our favorite snacks and then later the holiday meal.
We make loads of snacks for our holiday brunch, some of these are something we call toothpick thingies (I’ll share at another time), bacon & beer dip, deviled eggs, meats and cheeses, olives, these super yummy mushrooms, I could go on and on…
HELPFUL HINTS FOR MARINATED MUSHROOMS
Bring the water to a boil before adding the mushrooms. This way you can time how long they actually cook.
Be sure not to skip the ice bath. This will stop the cooking process.
- Button mushrooms
- Envelopes of Good Seasons Italian Dressing (the regular, not the zesty)
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper

A large pot with a lid will be needed to cook the mushrooms.
- Large soup pot

- 1 teaspoon Thyme dried
- 1 teaspoon Crushed rosemary dried
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

- Toss the mushrooms into a colander and wash them. Cut the end of the stem off of each one.
